After gaining valuable experience dealing with sustainability issues from his long run as a corporate counselor, Rich Fischer joined Clover Technologies, an organization that provides remanufactured products to companies that sell them under their own brand names. Clover offers a sustainable solution in the products themselves — they collect, clean, replace parts, refill and reseal ink cartridges to return to the marketplace — an environmentally superior and better economic choice compared to brand new cartridges. “Recycling is part of the landscape now,” Fischer says. “The real gains are to be made in finding the opportunities for reuse and repurposing, which essentially avoids the breaking down of the materials to start with.”
